The first step is just allowing your dreams to be in the first place. Let it be, and then it can start to work its magic.

My road in life took a while to figure out.
I went to Portland State University for college but didn’t end up graduating.
I married my high school sweetheart and had three children—a son and twin girls—but our marriage ended due to his infidelity a year after our twins were born.
I went through an extremely hard time as I went through the divorce and became a single mom—I had no income, we lost our house, and everything was in my ex-husband’s name.
I started a blog just to help myself process that difficult time in my life and soon after discovered there were other people like me out there trying to figure their lives out.
The blog did very well and I used it to transition into a life coaching business.
Because of the positivity I was visualizing and channeling, I went from food stamps and poverty to vice president of sales and a six-figure income within five years!
As my life coaching business grew, I was eventually able to leave my corporate job and focus on my business.
I’m now a motivational speaker and podcast host, and I've written two best-selling self-help books to help others turn their lives around.
Keep following my journey

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

If you want to be a life coach, start researching training programs that match what you'd like to do. Be sure to pick one that also teaches you how to build the business side too. I am totally self-taught and it made it much harder in some ways to build my business quickly because there was no guidance, mentorship, or template.
